Matt Myers is back

Panthers second signing announcement of the week was the return of Great Britain centre man Matt Myers (Panthers website report, Evening Post report, Radio Nottingham Interview).

Incredibly at the age of twenty four, this is Myers first full-time pro contract. After giving up his job as a surveyor at Christmas, he decided to concentrate on his hockey. The decision showed a rapid improvement in his game, so much so that his re-signing was seen as the most crucial by many Panthers supporters. Career best figures of 13+32 for 51 points shows his improvement.

Personally I’m absolutely chuffed to bits he’s returned, especially when you consider that there were strong rumours he was going to leave the club. I feel he has the ability to centre the first line, especially when you consider how good he is in the face-off circle. If he can improve his goal scoring record I feel he could become the best British forward in the league.

Panthers also announced two way signings today as Robert Lachowicz, James Neil and Joe Graham will ice for Panthers when they are not playing for Manchester Phoenix in the EPL, while Sam Bullas and Tom Norton will have the same arrangement with Milton Keynes Lightening. A good move for the academy boys and I can only see them improving from the benefit of more ice time.

Finally there was some more signing news today from Dingle Valley, as the Steelers announced the return of Mark Thomas to much apathy from the natives. The rest of the league pointed and laughed!
